Accept the Challenge.
How do you process your life? Do you define your life as a reaction to outside influences or as a product of your creation? Wisdom is the result of one being able to take the most challenging of experiences and to utilize it for greater growth, insight or vision. Once you are able to truly understand and acknowledge the relationship between cause and effect, you may distinguish between tribulation and opportunity. You are a product of how you have processed your life experiences.

How does this experience relate to things that you are experiencing in your life right now?
